kono... i'm already on it. pulling up the forfeiture locker. there's a white truck parked out in front right now. that's it-- they're going for what they think is $28 million. what they think is $28 million. not until you borrowed $10 million of it to save my life. we didn't have a choice. hesse was demanding $10 million, or he was gonna kill you. well, $28 million, $18 million, doesn't matter-- they're hitting the locker right now. she's right. hold on for one second. let's just think. think about what this means. hey, i know what this means, danny. we go bust these guys, hpd does an inventory on that money, they are gonna see that $10 million is missing. it doesn't necessarily trace back to us. we asked the governor to borrow $10 million, and she turned us down. as soon as the hpd tell her exactly how much is missing, she's gonna put it all together. well, what's the alternative? we could let 'em go. get a clean slate... and then i'd never look at my daughter in the face again. let's go. i'll drive.

respond. plus, only on 9. a local woman in a 12 day coma wakes up to find her car auctioned off. we helped track down what happened. plus, 27 and dead. now, amy winehouse and others gone at the height of their fame. well, if the president and congress can't solve the debt ceiling crisis maybe you can. both the speaker of the house and the president hit primetime television tonight trying to sell their own solution. >> president obama urging the american public to weigh in with congress hoping that might break the log jam. gary nurenberg reports no surprise each side is blaming other for the deadlock. >> reporter: the speaker and the president have endorsed different short-term solutions, no long term big deal deficit reduction plan. each is drawing fire from his respective base from giving away too much. each tonight saying essentially, we can give no
more. >> the president's right about one thing. >> we're left with a stalemate. >> his reminder ron old regan and george w. bush repeatedly signed increases in the debt ceiling was met with a quick response. >> more spending and more debt is business as usual. well i've got news for washington. significant action is taken now. >> he blamed the president. >> the president wanted a blank check six months ago and he wants a blank check today. this is just not going to happen. >> the two men are supporting different plans. senate democrats and house republicans came up with competing plans when bipartisan talks broke down and partisan finger pointing resumed. >> republicans are more interested trying to embarrass the president than doing what's right for the country. >> the senate plan raises the debt ceiling through the end of 2012 and cuts 2.7 trillion from domestic and defense spending. >> i believe that the plan is full of gimmicks. we're not making any real
changes in the spending structure of our government and it doesn't deal with the biggestdrivers of our deficit and our debt and that would be entitlement programs. >> so the house plan would raise the debt ceiling for only seven months coupled with 1.7 trillion in spending cuts, create a bipartisan commission that would try to find another 1.8 trillion and another vote to raise the debt ceiling after that. >> it doesn't solve the problem. >> the president says it would mean another showdown in months. he says the public is fed up. >> they're fed up with a town where compromise has become a dirty word. >> then, this. >> i'm asking all to make your voice heard. if you want a balanced approach to reducing the deficit, let your member of congress know. if you believe we can solve this problem through compromise, send that message. >> the president clearly hopes public pressure will move some in congress who have their heals dug in and knows that
polls show the public wants compromise but true believers on both sides will be phoning as well. at the end of months of issues, public response could be decisive here. worst job in town tomorrow? capitol switchboard operator. anita and derek? >> thank you, gary. only on 9 a northeast washington woman says her car was booted, towed away andauctioned off all while she was sick in the hospital. monique jenkins was hospitalized and in acute care for nearly eight weeks while she was fighting for her life in a 12 day coma, her war cause apparently put on the auction block and sold off by the city. 9 news now helped put together exactly how it all went down and it all came back to one unpaid speed camera ticket in d.c. for $100. monique said she had simply forgotten to pay it. >> i think when they said it was sold, i just burst out into tears. i didn't know what else to do. being in the hospital wasn't much i could do. >> now the department of public
works which overseas vehicle auctions says it's looking into this. they also say the vehicle is not normally auctioned off for at least 28 days and that would be after an owner has accrued at least two unpaid parking tickets. dpw alleges jenkins has three unpaid tickets. she disputes that number. in response to the casey anthony trial a new law in honor of her deceased daughter is gaining momentum and not just in florida. >> caylee's law would make it a felony of a parent fails to report a child missing within 24 hours and one local lawmaker is looking into that idea after getting and we quote an "almost unprecedented number of e-mails asking for it." >> reporter: folks took to their computers for signing a petition and then e-mailing their state senator. senator janet howell received 400 messages from her constituents all urging her to enact caylee's law. >> it says that we would even have to take that step that it
just says a lot about the parent. >> casey anthony was found not guilty in her daughters murder but guilty of lying to police. the young mother never reported her two year old daughter caylee missing. it was the child's grandmother who called police one month later. >> even to spouses missing or elderly missing. >> the movement sparked by one woman and now more than a million people from all across the country are on board but here at home, reaction is mixed. >> we learned from this case that there should be more attention focused in that area. >> some kids may have trouble in the household and they may take off routinely for a day or two, so when that happens, are the parents going to be penalised for not reporting their kids are gone? >> i think it is a little extreme to consider it a felony. >> the senator tells me during her research she discovered, "a huge gap in the code because there is no requirement for
reporting missing children." >> if there is a gap, we should go but it should not need to be any requirement because any sensible parent will go ahead and report a lost child immediately. >> now, senator howell also chairs the virginia state crime commission and she tells us she has asked them to look into a local version of the bill which would likely be introduced in january. nearly 30 other states are also considering adopting caylee's law including maryland. anita, derek? >> thank you. now, why did a teenager take a baby from baltimore and how did she manage to make her way down to d.c. regardless of the answers the family is just happy that child is back home tonight. police say seven month old kewan went missing on friday and they found him with 16 year old jonet booser at a bus stop this morning. he was then reunited with his mom, 20 year old whitney mcgee
at children's national medical center. >> i'm just happy that he's home, but that little baby is just everybodies heart and his grandfather i looked at him, it was no worries. nothing you can say or do, so all you can do is say to good bring my little boy home. >> police say his father churches birch left the boy with booser while he went out to buy cigarettes. officers say that's when she vanished with the child. tonight, sleep might not come easy for folks in a fredrick, maryland neighborhood. lurking out there in the night might be a serial arson it's. over the past year as many as six homes have been caught fire, have caught fire that is under mysterous circumstances. one of the latest early sunday morning on young place near fort dietrich. the couple who lives there had to run for their lives. >> as he was going out the front door, the carport door exploded. >> just a half an hour later, another house fire, this one
just a few blocks away on h street. the state fire marshall and fredrick police are investigating all these recent fires. 9 news now has learned d.c. council member harry thomas met today with his legal team and they've been talking about and among his associates on just how we respond to mounting calls for his resignation. today council chair brownish used a statement that stops just short of asking thomas to step down. other council members have made similar statements. last week without admitting wrong doing, thomas agreed to repay $300,000 but the d.c. attorney general says thomas had converted to personal use. the taxpayer and charitable dollars were intended for youth baseball programs. well tonight, local psychiatrists are expressing concern for their own safety after the murder of another doctor. police say 62 year old barbara newman shot and killed dr. mark lawrence inside his mcclean home friday and they say lawrence worked out of his home and newman was there for an
